Quote of the Day

When [our daughter] Ana finally revealed the secret she'd been carrying, she was just transformed. When she was able to name her loving feelings for another woman, she was just filled with energy; there was brightness in her eyes. She felt like she was home. And boy, how could I say no to that, to say no and turn that light off?
